Pick it up.
8.0/10 review of DC Comics’ SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN #3, written by Charles Soule and illustrated by Tony Daniel and Matt Batt Banning.
Superman/Wonder Woman #3: Best issue yet. Thought we’d get Zod going on a rampage but then he goes all sneaky. Lovely scenes with Batman.
A powerful foe has escaped from the Phantom Zone. Can Superman and Wonder Woman stop this madman before he gains full power under the Earthâs yello
Superman/Wonder Woman #3 was a nice step up in quality. The relationships between everyone, the dialogue, and the emotional aspects were strong and helped make the characters more real in a way. If this is where things start improving, then I’m excited to see where the title will continue on from here.
It’s time for Zod to make his debut. What is he up to, and more importantly, can Superman and Wonder Woman hope to stop him?
Soule successfully moves the overall narrative forward while also throwing plenty of variables into the mix. There’s a lot of buildup in this issue and you can definitely feel all of the factors circulating. The cliffhanger’s something we’ve all seen coming a mile away, but everything else has me incredibly anxious to witness how it’ll all play out. With Daniel on-board, we know it’ll be a good looking ride, too.

The weekly title, “The New 52: Futures End,” debuts on Free Comic Book Day in May with a free zero issue, with the first issue of series hitting shelves and digital storefronts later that month. It is the second such weekly book for DC in 2014. The other, “Batman: Eternal,” launches in the spring as DC celebrates Batman’s 75th anniversary.
Hints about the series have been dropped by DC in recent weeks, with images of Batman Beyond online as well as a mention in the “DC All Access” web series that saw a pair of logo designs dubbed “Five Years Later.”
